Chances are, once the new year is here, you’ll be feeling ready to make some improvements. It’s the time of year to make resolutions, set goals for 2019, and generally create positive change in your life in the areas you feel are deserving of some extra attention.
Updating your wardrobe even slightly can revitalize and refresh your whole outlook as well as your look. Here are some easy tips for adding a new twist to existing outfits while still working with what you have in your closet.
The White Tank
Always a key basic to have in your wardrobe, the white tank or tee will be a statement piece with a great pair of wide leg pants or a maxi skirt this spring. Find an organic cotton blend to lessen your environmental footprint when replacing key pieces like this one.
Black + White Polka Dots
This classic never really escapes us. Look for a versatile knee-length skirt in this print that wears well with blouses and blazers alike to replace that plain black pencil skirt. Another option: Add a polka dot tank under your jacket to instantly update your look.
Pink + Red
While Millennial Pink is still going strong, we saw a lot of red making an impact this fall. Now you can combine the two colours together for a dramatic pop. Chances are, you’ve got one or two pieces of each floating around in your wardrobe. Try a pale pink jacket over a ruby red top. Or, pair a pale pink blouse with red statement trousers.
The Fanny Pack
If you want to add one accessory to your wardrobe that’s really, truly trending, that accessory would be the fanny pack. This piece is back in a big way. So, leave all of those extra accessories at home, and go minimal with a sleek and simple fanny pack.
We’re seeing head to toe lavender on the runway this spring. You can start by adding a tinge of the lavender softness to freshen up your spring wardrobe. Lavender is an extremely flattering colour on most skin tones, so adding something as simple as a lavender scarf to our outfit will remind you that spring is just around the corner!
Dark Denim Sets
Ah yes, last but not least, the Canadian Tuxedo. Head to toe denim makes a statement like no other, and chances are you have the staples already hanging in your closet to pull this one off. Darker shades of denim are the updated version of this trend, but the faded shades aren’t going anywhere, so wear this trend how you’d like it.
In the end, it’s valuable (in more ways than one) to remember that updating you wardrobe doesn’t necessarily mean going out and buying a whole new wardrobe every season. By adding a few key pieces to your capsule wardrobe, you can easily update your look and feel like you’re ready to achieve all of those 2019 goals you’ve set for yourself!
